Viviti is simple tool for creating websites – no HTML knowledge necessary. Simple tools are used to crafting professional looking websites.
Viviti went live in 2008 and is based out of Vancouver. Viviti.com was rebranded as Jigsy.com in March 2011.
Rather than working from a design interface, Viviti users create and edit right on the web page so that results are immediately visible. The WYSIWYG text editor and drag and drop option for placement of items on the site for immediate viewing makes this a much more streamlined tool than other site creators.
After registering, users are given choices of themes for their sites. There are a lot of attractive themes to choose from, both general and specific to certain hobbies, tastes, or professions. Once chosen, the homepage is displayed with tips for users to customize. Multiple uploads are allowed and photos upload very quickly. The text editor is easy to use and intuitive. Audio, documents, and videos may also be added with the easy file management system.
Help is easy to find with the links to message forums and the documentation wiki. The wiki has a very thorough list of links and video tutorials for using the tools and features of Viviti.
Members provide an email address, username, and password to join.
A free 15-day trial is offered for those wishing to try out the Viviti site tools. This trial allows 1 website with 5MB storage, unlimited bandwidth, and three pages. After the trial period, users may choose the $10/month plan that offers 1 website with 1GB storage, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited pages as well as domain mapping, password protection, stock photos, premium support, and no ads. The $20 plan contains all of the same items as the $10 plus 3 sites, 3GB storage, and $25 in Facebook ad credits. The $30 plan offers all that the $20 plan does with 5 websites and 5GB storage.
Anyone who wants an easy website builder with multiple options for customization and enhancement will enjoy Viviti. Because no programming or HTML knowledge is needed, this is very accessible as long as the user is not averse to paying a monthly fee after the trial period is over.
